press purpose ol tonsinating an Abolition
electoral ticket. It was presidedl over bly
the [in Willian Jakson. ;an ardent
Whig, and receutly a inember elf Congress
from the District No. 9. The question un
der :S'cussion was the Alolitionisn of
General II arrison. A pmt tion of the mem
bers of the conventioni were for a seperate
organization, and another portion desired
to brinag the Abolition force to the stpport
f General Hlarrison." U this point the
discussion mainly turned."

the Aliolitionists generally, they believel
that there were a choice of evil,, betweven

Harrison, on the ground that he wnt more
to he relied on for slavery than Van Bit
ren. He believed that more recently oth
er secret pledges, by private letters fromu
General lierrison or his friends, had been,
or would be, circulated among the South
ern Whin slaveholders, which would pro
hably come to light, and upon w hich it
was relied to rally itac South for his sip
port. Mr. [iives, or some friend of his,
had undoubtly got such a letter. This
otld this only could account for the recent
rally of the w'hi:: party at the South. upon
Ham-on. The South, he believed, woild
eve:ntiaLiy, and that soon, change its po
sition frotn Jeileronian doctrines as thev
wcre called, of 1798, and go for high tarit1
and a national bank, with a view to
strengten the slave power; and :herefore
he did not rely upon their past opposition
to ahese measures to induce then to op
poise Harrison now, if they could depend
on his pledges to their paramontt pritici
ple. slavery, by which they could plonder
the- Norlt. But they must hesure ofttat,
and this accounted for Harrison's oppo
site course at the North and South.
This was one side of the picture. lie
neant to be impartial. fur lie regarded nei
ther party, and looked upon both as the
enemy of Abolition. While these secret
tledges to slavery were circulating at tite
Sottth, the oppo,ite opinions were onfi
dently asc-riied to IlIarriso at the Ntrth,
to secure tle Abolitionisis. The double

BEETS, WATFMMELLOSs, &..-Aur
friend, the Editor of the Temperance Ad
vocate, produced a Beet to beat our Beet
some time ago; we have no desire to brow
beat him, but we have now a Beet to beat
his Beet that beat our Beet, and we defy
any person in our beat, or any other beat,
to produce a bigger Beet. It is from "the
diggins" of Air. A. M. Hunt, of the U. S.
Hotel-We have not seen it weighed, but
Mr. hlunt informs us that it weighs 19J

crowing over the Advocate, and as we de
sire no foul play, we will be pleased to
exhibit to all who may have any curiosity
to see it, at our oflice.
Our brother Editor has the advantage
over us in watermelons. It is supposed
improper to send Doctors a watermelon,
because they are frequently called upon to
settle diffliculties which it creates among
friends-and it would hardly be expected
of them to recommend "tihe bane and an
tidote both." As drinking toasts is ont of
fashion now, if ever we should accidently
have a big watermelon sent to uQ, we will
cat a slice to his health and wish him "fruit
for his deserts."
Instead of considermg his Editorial on
Turnips as a -breach of privilege" we are
pleased to find hin recommending a very
important maitter to planters. We wish
editors generally would assist the planting
community more than they do. A single

OUR TOWN AGAIN.
Business seem once more revived in our
town, and theistreets have been actually
crowed this week with produce-wagons.
The merchants, we understand, have done
a fair business intselling and buyig.
The cheering sound of the carpenture's
and mason's utensils is atill increasing, and
a number of buildings have been com
pletely repaired which have been out of
use for some time past. We notice that
the ware-house of Mr. G. Walker is tho
roughly re-fitted, after being unoccupied
for years; it is now raised above the mark
of the last flood, ar.d ready for business.
Our merchants are actively preparing for
the coming trade; all arelin motion, and
getting ready, with energy, for the opera
tions of the autumn. And what is Henry
Shutz about? He has been working for
a month past on two vaults in his secure
office; and, judging from the durability o'
his former works, we opine that an entrance
into these vaults, intrusivelyot feloniously,
when they are entitely completed, will be
a thing not to be thought of, for they are
made as safe as his ingenuity could make
them, and fire and water cannot injure
them. We have heard it hinted by some,
and even by Mr. S. himself, that these
places are designed lbr money-houses.
Now, taking every prognostication of our
prospect into consideration, it is not at all
unlikely that some capitalists or bank-a
gent will occupy one of them next fall,
and we dotht not but we shall have plen
ty of Carolina and good Georgia money to
operate with during the coming season.

ions of the Independent Teeasury Act,

Savannah must "be up and doing," if they
want the Hamburg trade; whichever will
do the he-t for us. as regard money mat

why should those little pigs be so very at

which was stuffed with hran, had burst
open and was letting out its stores to a
